There, they meet Dr. Ahjay Bhatnagar and the New Mutants. Mirage summons the doctors greatest wish at the moment, a small army of medical specialists. Together the two teams of superheroes help repair the emergency room. The two teams keep working until the National Guard arrives. They gather on a rooftop where Dani explains how the Demons escaped from Limbo. Power Pack tells the mutants how their parents seem to be having a hard time dealing with knowing their secret identities.
Power Pack arrives home to find their parents in a deteriorating mental state. The New Mutants arrive and Mirage explains that since the Bogeyman was convinced that the Power kids were mutants, they planned on replacing the kids with super-powered decoys. Suddenly, the "actual" kids burst into the room. Power Pack plays along with Mirage's story and Alex apologizes for having to trick them. As the Power family goes to sleep, Mirage tells the real Power Pack to join their family as the fake children disappear.
An Inferno tie-in. It won't be easy for Power Pack to help the New Mutants wrap up Inferno. But that's going to be a breeze compared to facing their parents, now that their folks know about their dual identities!
